This Wednesday, the 21st, our speaker will be Susan VandeWoude, DVM, new director of the CSU One Health Institute and head of CSU's  Medical Sciences Training Program (MSTP), an elite program to train medical scientists for careers in medical research.  The institute focuses on interconnected problems in health, between humans, animals and the environment.  Cats, bats and other critters can be expected to contribute in interesting ways to our own health and economy in the years to come.  Expect to hear how and what the academic community is doing to address this concern.  Join the meeting and program Wednesday at

Lucky Charms - WikipediaPresident Del Benson announced our fall "Good and Lucky" Non-Event Fund Raising Event to be held November 4, 5:30 PM via Zoom.  The Non-Event allows participants to stay home; no admission charge, no drinks, no cocktails, no music, no dancing and no MC.  The "Good" part is because funds raised will be invested in Charity, using funds generated from expenses we've all not spent over the last 8 months.  (Has it been that long?)  The "Lucky" part is everyone who makes a contribution will be rewarded with a Powerball ticket, and someone may get very lucky!  
Last Wednesday, Dr Joyce McConnell, President of CSU and RCFC member, delivered her second annual review of the “State of the University”.  No surprise - it was predominantly about COVID (much like everything else in our lives).  Emphasizing CSU as a member of our community,  Dr McConnell shared that she meets regularly with members of the local community, now focused on sharing data with public health officials at the city, county and state level.  Review the presentation at:
